Frequently Asked Questions
DO YOU ONLY SUPPORT UNMEDICATED BIRTHS?
I support all types of birth, whether it is at home, a hospital, in a birth center, medicated, or unmedicated!
DO YOU PERFORM ANY PHYSICAL EXAMINATIONS?
I am not a medical professional, so this is out of my scope of services! I cannot perform any physical examinations, such as cervical checks & fetal monitoring - I can provide you evidence-based research on them though.
HOW WILL HIRING YOU AFFECT MY PARTNER’S ROLE DURING THE BIRTH?
I support both the birthing person & their partner as a doula. My services will compliment your partner’s support while in labor, & I can provide them with information on how to best support you when I am not present! We work as a team, & I can assure you that your partner is going to be very involved in your birthing experience, especially if you hire a doula.
ARE YOU ABLE TO DO PAYMENT PLANS FOR YOUR SERVICES?
Absolutely. I never want the price of services to be a reason an expecting family goes without doula support - everyone deserves a doula in their corner! I am happy to break payments up monthly, biweekly, or however else works for us. During our consultation, please mention if you have a financial situation that would benefit from payments. When I write up our contract, I can add in our agreement so that there is so confusion moving forward, & no worries on your part!
